    Most computer bugs are stealthy, silent things that keep far from sight. They can only be detected by the tracks they leave behind. Only rage computer bugs actually clamber onto your monitor and try to eat your cursor:

    Heh, that was really kinda neat. I've noticed that common flies don't act like that. Goes to show how well those little critters can actually see.

    What particular bug was that anyway? Looked too red to be a Praying Mantis.

    There are red mantises. And I think the low light made it appear even more red. And those drapes didn't help, either.

    Maybe that the bug is fake and just an animation? [​IMG]

    Nice video. It made me smile.

    Imagine the bugs reaction if you minimize the windows or start playing a video about bugs!
